Type of bacterial food poisoning
Infection type: The infection type results from the release of toxin in the bowel by microorganisms taken in foods, e.g., Salmonella or Vibrio parahaemolyticus.
Toxic type: This form results from the ingestion of foods in which a toxin has already been formed, e.g., staphylococcal enterotoxin and botulinum toxin.
Intermediate type: This form results from the release of toxin in the bowel by microorganisms that do not produce it readily in food, e.g., Clostridium perfringens.
